Downtown Reykjavik Apartments
Ranked #16 of 110 Specialty Lodging in Reykjavik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We recently took a family vacation to Iceland and stayed in the Downtown apartments. Our flight arrived late in the night and had to pay extra for late check-in. When we arrived in the apartment we found it quite spacious for 5 adults, two bedrooms and one pull out couch. There were also two bathrooms one with no toilet just a urinal. We had told the staff prior to arrival there would be 5 adults however, when we got to the room there were not enough towels or any sheets for the sofa bed. Since it was so late no one was at the front desk so we had to make do with what was provided on the other beds. There was also a funky smell coming from the dishwasher because it had not been run and there were many dirty dishes from the previous people staying. The next morning we complained to the front desk and got more sheets and towels. The room apart from the dishwasher was clean and we did not have a problem with the noise level of outside. The hotel is super close to all the restaurants and bars. All in all the place was quite nice and I would definitely recommend staying!!

Very conveniently located self-contained apartments, not far from the main street of Reykjavik and within walking distance of the BSI bus station and hire car facilities. We had en-suite with a kitchen area, the room was very spacious for two people, especially as rooms in Iceland can sometimes be quite small. The host was friendly too. Recommended.

Fantastic value two bedroom, two bathroom appartment in central Reykyavik, with parking. A very modern space with most fittings and furniture as new. The living space was big, clean and well equipped. We arrived in the early evening and the after hours self check in process was very easy. This place would make anyone from couple to families feel very happy and at home. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Two very slight drawbacks - for such a well equipped appartment it was strange that there was no toaster (although there was a toasted sandwich maker) and the parking spaces were cramped when 4x4s were parked. We were last in and couldn't fit so had to park 3 min walk away on the street.

These slight drawbacks were totally outweighed by the quality and value of the appartment. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Appt 200 was on the edge of the complex so possibly quieter than others, although there was nothing...

We have recently returned from a brilliant stay here. The beds are super comfy and cosy. The rooms are huge. The apartment was perfect for our family with three huge young men! We have no complaints at all...despite having very high standards. (The enormous television was football watching heaven.)
The host, Thora, was polite, friendly and helpful- her English is perfect too.
The position of the apartments is extremely convenient- 5 mins from a bakery/cafe and a supermarket. The main shopping street is not far away either. All in all, we highly recommend anyone who wishes to self cater to stay here.

Room Tip: The penthouse has 4 double rooms and a great view of the cathedral- room 402.

Waking up our first morning to a jackhammer was not pleasant, or each sunsequent weekday morning. The walls were thin and could we could hear the water running in the next kitchen, which was at our headboard...... The apartment was not very clean, but the duvet covers and towels were. The laundery had 3 washing machines, 2 of which did not work. The 2 dryers took several hours to dry the clothes. The laundry room was very dirty. Otherwise, the place was ok. First trip in Eurpoean country, so these accomodations may pass as normal?

8 of us arrived for a weekend in Rekjavik and we had only booked for 6 people. The chap who owns the place(i forget his name) was very accommodating. He let us have the penthouse apartment for a slight extra cost but split between 8 people it was nothing. The bedrooms are comfortable, the bathrooms and communal areas all very clean. The best part was being able to see the Northern lights from our balcony! Would recommend staying here to anyone.

The rooms are decent, except if you have any sort of family situation. There is a pull out couch in the main area and what is effectively one massive bed in the other room. I stayed here with my brother and my parents and (4 of us) all of us were getting maybe 4 hours of sleep maximum per night.

The walls are paper thin, and between the constant construction, the maid slamming and banging things, the pipes which sound like African rain sticks, and the ability to hear every word your neighbor says, we gave up on trying to get any rest during our stay. Oh and all of that racket starts at a cheery 5 am.

Also, there is no phone in the building whatsoever. So unless you have some kind of international plan on your cell phone forget about trying to make a local call.

All of us agree, we would never stay here again were we to make another trip back. Bring earplugs if you're brave enough to stay here. This place is not for tourists!
